We had a great meal and the staff accommodated our needs with two young granddaughters! We had five different dishes and they were all very good. I recommend this place when in Kent.

When you go to the Fife 'n Drum, you know you can get a good, hearty meal. Stick with the standard fare here (they excel at the "meat and potatoes" type dishes) and you will have a good dinner. This was my second time eating...More
